Alan Freeman - Wants List!
bookmark this page: http://home.btconnect.com/ultimathule/wants.htm
One of my aims in life is to try and hear everything that is supposed to be good! That is in the world of prog/experimental/weird music. I wonder if I'm getting there? This list regularly shrinks and grows, and is constantly changing. As always, I welcome suggestions. i.e. anything new that I should know? Before suggesting older stuff, check my collection & other lists on this site, as I may already know it! But, you never know, I'm still amazed by some things I missed!
Excepting any listed as "Original CD's wanted of these..." I'm not after actual releases unless cheap! There are very few things that I actually want/need for myself. Generally I'm researching, clutching at straws, looking for odd missing items needed for projects. As much of this stuff is liable to be of little or no interest to us, some is sure to be rubbish, a recording/copy is usually adequate. I'm usually just interested in hearing the items below, as a download or CDR copy, and/or we can barter/swap. I like to remaster LP transcriptions to achieve CD quality in my archive, so please do not offer me scratchy vinyl rips, nor ones that are low bandwidth or not transferred directly, and especially not ones with jumps or bits of tracks missing. EX+ vinyl or better please!
Are you looking for something? Searching in vain? Why not email me: email@example.com with your wants list? I have a huge archive. We may be able to come to a swap arrangement! I can swap physical CDRs, or online via flac or mp3. Or you can buy.
Things I'm wanting to hear...
actual product if cheap/reasonable, or a listening copy preferably from a source ex+ or better please!

Cheops - EUPHORIA FLIT 1985 cassette - debut cassette by UK space-rock band, almost a decade before their other releases that I have!
Chronicle - LIVE AT WHISKY A-GO-GO (Express TOCT-11414) used to have, need again - only from the CD reissue. Recently got a copy that was supposedly from the CD but wasn't, just 2 LP side tracks, with glitches and jumps :(
Hugh Davies - PERFORMANCES 1969 - 1977 - CDR Another Timbre at-r01 - electroacoustic performances by Gentle Fire member during the same era, could be excellent

The Fisherman's Walkband - ¿SUERTE? - LP, 1981 private press - Very Xhol / Out Of Focus like based on https://youtu.be/wkdTKORygOw - Hopefully the rest is up to that standard. They later turned into a Latino / Salsa type band, and after a few albums changed name to Agua Loca.
Richard Franecki - WELCOME TO THE ELECTRIC CIRCUS - maybe
Pierre Henry - LA REINE VERTE (Unidisc UD 30.3005) 1965 version. I have the Philips 1971 version with 16 tracks & a different track list (plus 1 extra track from Mass For The Present Time).

Attention - Greenville, Carolina / Green Kitchen, 7" Polydor 2041 179 - 1971 probably pop - on Discogs
Changes - IMAGES TO REMEMBER, LP - KS 9005 - Swiss 1990 - [r5688165] - Don't know if I'm interested, this turns out to be the same band as issued THE GROWING NUMBER in 1994 which wasn't so great.
CONTACT, LP Blackfield Tonstudio Bts 721 (1972) Pseudo Krups / Osmose / Laubentanz / Faktotum - this is pre Contact Trio, but with a clarinet player instead of guitarist. Likely to be too jazz for me. An mp3 track sample will do.
Eulenspygel - TRASH (Spiegelei 23-707-3 U) - please has anyone out there got the 8-Track and able to copy it?
Ex Ovo - IN DER RHEIN-MOSEL-HALLE, CD private - a bootleg?

Oskar Sala - ELECTRONIC KALEIDOSCOPE (Wergo SM 1040) LP only soundtracks collection
Salt - BE MY FISHERMAN, LP S 15748 - doubtful, God rock! [r4449978]

Schmandelekker – TOURDION, LP Ornament – CH 7.336 - found at [r6070988] - turns out to be mellow folk in German based on " Mosella in Trauer" on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2BohS60qFY - so probably of no real interest to us?
Rolf Schulz' Largo - BAUMSARG (private release) 1988 - if it's anywhere near as good as his previous two!
Sonatinenblues - instrumental folk? representative?: www.youtube.com/watch?v=M28L01UrWLs

Recorded at the Ougenweide-Studio in Hamburg. Musically totally avantgarde, somewhere between early FAUST, CAN in their "Tago Mago" phase, Lothar & The Hand People and some hints of 80s Berlin bands like Malaria or Einstürzende Neubauten.
Tracks: Steinzeit / Japan / Schützenkönige / Wie Du Dir so ich mir / Karibische Messer / Falkland / Liebe ist kälter als Eis / Der Araber / Die fromme Helene - Morgenstund hat Volt im Mund
Toxyne - NUR NICH NERVOES WERDEN, cassette (Aleph² MC 001) 1981 - Shoulder Of Mutton A - related

[r#######] = Discogs reference
Agnetha - LISTEN TO THE FUTURE, LP Agnetha Records (1980) - reputedly sort of hard rock

Change - CHANGE, LP private RB1 (1976) - Apparently some sort of jazz fusion
Constellation - Tears / Attitudes, 7" private 7 F 65227 (1974) - from CPG - some sort of jazz [r5435086]

Munich Big Band - MUNICH BIG BAND, LP Intersong 004 (19??) - Only documented on a library LP, these amounted to an international supergroup. Probably crappy TV theme jazz, or maybe could be good?

Nose - Layla / Sunny Morning, 7" Harvest 1C 006-29 960 (1972) - Ubopopland say these are German Kraut prog. "Layla" is the Derek & the Dominoes song (arranged by Rainer Pietsch) in Epitaph vein. They are rumoured to be Janus related, so maybe they are British not German?
Onyx - MENSCHEN, LP private (1981) - Some sort of folk outfit, compared to Schariwari and Reifrock. Also: NIKE, LP Happy Sound HS 08543 (1985), Der Erste Bayerische Astronaut / Breakdance-Zenzi, 7" vlw 88.33 (1985)

Roccata - A ROCKIN' GAME, LP private (1985) - nothing on the web
Rollsplytt - FLAPPERGRANNY, LP private 0784121410 (1982) Unknown instrumental fusion sextet according to CD reissue wish list site - says pop rock at [r6356732]
Scara Brae - SCARA BRAE (private, 1985) - Genesis members guest apparently (but don't think so) - side 1 is a 19m experimental track? YouTube track: www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7moIV-JFxk "Steelyard Blues" runs through many styles, ending with a good freak-out. Either 200 copies, or 60 it says here!
Snowblind - FIRST TIME OUT, LP Brutkasten 85 R031 (1982) tracks: Poor Boy / Starvin' / Haze / Limbo / Rock Against Disco / Nasta-rovje Kossygyn / Groove (Freedom Song) - possibly straight pop/rock/NDW? - [r8566488]
Store Evil - LIVE AUS DEM LEINE-DOMICIL, LP Lava TCH 77350 (1977) - jazz-rock of some sort (on Discogs). Sounds good based on the one track (streaming sample) on Fagostore site, a bit Ibliss, Aera, Kraan like. Review there says some of it is funky. Need to hear the whole album!
Störopor - FÜR KOPF UND OHR, LP Coloured Rain CR 002/74 (199?) - probably never released?
Tenderness - TENDERNESS, LP Stahl or Intercord (?) - probably fiction?

Nick Uhlsteyn - AUTUMN SONGS, LP Racket Records RRK 15.003 (1981) - Prog or dance-electronic.
United Four - MIXTOUR, LP private 66.22922 (1985) some sort of rock, seller's notes: Unknown and obscure but nevertheless quite good german rock band. Amazing organ / synthie / keyboard work here.
Uranus - My Friends / People Talking Around, 7" BASF 05 11252-1 (1971) - Early band featuring top German 1980s pop star Drafi Deutscher, and co-composition of the A-side by Les Humphries. Unlikely to be of interest, and listed as: Rock, Pop, Pop Rock, Europop by one seller.
Venus - VENUS, LP private AK 1 (1975) - Supposedly progressive underground. No idea quite what the whole album will be like based on the extract heard - starts with phase modulation, acoustic guitar with female voice in German, goes a bit boogie jamming - curious, could be good.
Manni von Bohr - MANNIFEST, CD Blue Flame 398 50242 (1998) - solo by the well-travelled rock drummer
Zeberon - ZEBERON, LP Mullbinde (1971) - probably fiction?
Zeitlos - AUF LEBEN UND TOD - Novalis related 2001 CDR only, unlikely to be of any interest

If you know of any brilliant albums that aren't in our collection, wants, or other pages on this site, then we'd like to know!
You see, there are bound to be other awesome revelations like The Beat Of The Earth (whom we'd never heard of until very recently),
who turn out to be pre-Friendsound (same organist), or Japanese esoterica like Kimio Mizutani or People, and we only just recently
discovered there was a third Atila album. There's bound to be many other things we're missing. (was written 2007)
Our basic tastes are Krautrock, experimental/cosmic/space-rock, the more unusual (less vocal) end of prog, jazz-rock (more solo driven,
rock & ethnic spiced, rather than fiddly/technical), non-genre electronic and cross-culture, 1970's Euro-rock/prog, some synth, ethnic, etc.
Some favourite bands? What do we already have? See our collection list!
What do we already know? Check the A-Z list of over 4,700 prog & experimental artists in our UT Web Encyclopedia!
